Our sixth season will usher in two exciting milestones for Peace Mountain Theater Company:
The first-ever staging of three full productions – Fall 2019, Spring 2020, and Fall 2020 AND . . .
A move to a NEW venue in downtown Bethesda, beginning with our Spring 2020 production!
We’ll open our 2019-2020 season this December with Other Desert Cities by Jon Robin Baitz at Congregation Har Shalom. The play premiered Off-Broadway in January 2011 and had moved to Broadway by November. It was a finalist for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for drama.
